General Data Protection Regulations 2018

What is GDPR?

Basically, the GDPR (which comes into effect on 25 May 2018) was created to unify the personal data protection rules across the EU, and must be followed by all companies, businesses or other entities that collect personal data in some way. For these entities, the GDPR will introduce many additional rules that will affect many areas of the data management process, such as the collection and storage of data processing documentation, monitoring of potential personal data breaches, and involving a supervisory authority in matters such as, for example, the aforementioned data breaches.

The GDPR's main purpose is to enhance the protections that EU citizens have when their data is used and collected and afford them new rights such as the right to transfer their personal data, or to be forgotten; that is, to have their personal data removed from a system when the law no longer requires its retention.  With all of these new regulations comes enforcement, and in order for companies to protect themselves potential multi-million euro fines, it is important that they ensure that they protect any collected personal data as effectively as they can.

The right to be forgotten

An individual may, on request, demand that any and all information regarding them, stored on, calendar or booking system be removed.  Data may not be deactivated or hidden and must be deleted entirely

The data we have to obtain for people hiring the Village Hall  

The personal data required is the contact information necessary to complete the booking (name, address, telephone and email address);  

When anyone books the Hall, this information has to be provided by the Hirer (or someone acting on their behalf) in order to complete the booking. Therefore, processing of the personal data is necessary for the performance of the Contract to Hire Skillington Village Hall.

We consider the lawful grounds for processing this data under the Data Protection Regulations to be that Skillington Village Hall is entering a Contract with the individual (in this case the Hirer).   

Other notes placed on the Booking may include price confirmation or specific instructions.

When a booking request is submitted from this web site, emails will be sent to the applicant reflecting the data they submitted on the booking request form and to the nominated Booking Secretary committee member responsible for bookings. If the booking request is accepted the entry will be made firm in the Booking Calendar and confirmed by email to the hirer. Information entered as a necessary part of the booking, timing information (both the time being booked and the date and time the booking is made) name, address, and any other personal identifiable information is not visible publicly in the calendar. Potential and existing hirers of the hall accessing the calendar will only see times and dates marked as “Booked” or “Reserved” and no identifiable information of existing hirers. Access to the calendar showing identifiable data is restricted to nominated committee members.  


Access to the calendar is restricted to Authorised Members of the Hall Committee who are permitted to view, or amend a booking, full access and management of any bookings is the responsibility of the Booking Secretary.


Data is retained for 24 months from the date of the actual hiring (not the date the booking was made). Once 24 months has been reached, the data is discarded.


Although we cannot erase the detail of the actual booking prior to the 24 month expiration, we can render as anonymous the booking detail if requested to do so.
